USGNN Original StorySociety of Glass and Ceramic Decorators to Honor Duffer of PPG

The Society of Glass and Ceramic Decorators (SGCD) has announced that Paul Duffer, senior research associate of PPG Industries, will be honored with the 2008 Frank Child Award.

The award is given annually to an individual who has made significant contributions to the field of glass and/or ceramic decorating. Duffer was chosen based on "outstanding technical achievement," according to Myra Warne, administrative director of SGCD.

"This came as a real surprise to me," says Duffer. "A real honor, indeed, coming from this particular group of people."

The formal presentation of the award will take place at SGCD's annual convention, Deco 2008, which will be held April 16-19, 2008, at the Omni ChampionsGate Resort in Orlando, Fla.
